The Israeli Marine Innovation Association is now a member of the International Council of Marine Industry Associations

The Israeli Marine Innovation Association has joined ICOMIA, the International Council of Marine Industry Associations, with immediate effect. The Israeli MIA brings together innovative companies, industry influencers, and municipal developers that are shaping the future of the Israeli and global maritime industry.

The Israeli MIA was founded by Shabtai Levi and Idan Cohen, whose combination of backgrounds represents the Israeli maritime industry as a whole and brings together decades of military and marine experience with the Israeli culture of cutting-edge technologies and innovation.

Idan Cohen says: “The Israeli Marine Innovation Association is thrilled to mark this historic day for the Israeli maritime industry. Israel is a coastal country, and the sea is part of its history and its culture. Due to its size and location, it faces a lot of challenges, and it has the innovation capabilities to develop groundbreaking solutions wherever they are needed.

“We are certain that the exchange of ideas and collaborations within the ICOMIA community will disrupt the industry and tackle the challenges it faces around the globe and are looking forward to learning from other members and sharing the Israeli insights for the industry.”

ICOMIA is the international trade association representing the global marine industry since 1966. It brings together national boating federations in one global organisation and represents them at an international level, presenting a strong and united voice when dealing with issues challenging the industry.
